Clean black cherry flavors balance the tight, chalky tannins of this wine; to pair with steak.
The Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot has successfully built upon this tradition, offering Cabernets up-front dark fruit flavour and length, while Merlots juicy plum fruit fills out the mid-palate to create a seamless wine from start to finish.Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot is defined by its full-flavoured style with excellent fruit and approachability.
